                                   -----------

  No two repeats are the same for guitar 1, so to make the tab less confusing
I've included the song time and lyrics.  All notes for Guitar 1 are 16th notes.

 Transcribing the banjos for guitar is virtually impossible without using some
 insane tunings and a partial capo, so I've included the banjo parts "as is"
      for those who play the instrument and for the sake of completeness.
